Promised throw...
Hello everyone i hope someone can help me out!

I promised one of the girls i work with that i would knit her and her husband a throw as a housewarming gift and as i'm really only a beginner i was planning on using this free pattern for a "6 hour throw" from lion brand yarns (will prob take 26 hrs!!)
http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/...tml?noImages=0

I even bought 25mm (US size 10) needles on ebay (my bf calls them my novelty needles & thought they were a joke when he first saw them) but i almost fainted when i realised how much the postage to Ireland would be for the yarn and then i read a few reviews of lion homespun saying it felt VERY synthetic and irritated some people's skin.

so...please can anyone help me with either a nice easy pattern or a substitute yarn to use or even tell me what works for you!

Many thanks for any replies my fellow Knit-knuts!!
lili!
